Standard shopping centre Spoon's which was quite busy on my early evening visit. Decent choice of beers on (probably due to the current festival) including Butcombe Haka, Ishii Minagof Juicy IPA and a couple of others. The 3 I tried were spot on and a bargain at £2.10 a pint. Happy to have called in.

Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about The Arthur Robertson (JD Wetherspoon)

Dull-looking 'spoons in the One Stop Shopping centre, featuring a large rectangular bar with just a couple of partitions to break things up a bit. Standard mix of furniture and dark decor. Also has some patio seating out front by the adjacent station / bus interchange. Just five real ales from a total of ten handpumps on this visit, but at least the local Backyard Blonde (£2.15) was in good form.

This is a Spoons that's handy for both the Bus and Railway Stations. Inside it's an open plan rectangular room with the bar at the rear. There are two good features of this one, the first is that the toilets are on the ground floor and the second is that they haven't crammed in too many tables making it much more comfortable than some.
The beer choice from the ten hand pumps was more average with the JDW Trio Of Doom and Hook Norton Nerdherder IPA doubled up leaving room for just Lymestone Ein Stein & some football themed rubbish from them. I noticed three ciders from the upcoming festival in the fridge so went for them.
Having had an extended stay here I got to quite like it.

Safe to say, its not going to be bothering CAMRAs Heritage Pub Guide any time soon.

Very typical Wetherspoons. Could be anyone in the land - apart from when you are served you food and the waiter says "Did you order Nosh?"

Decent pint of Doom Bar and good value meal.

A modern Spoon's chain pub and eatery, with front patio area. It is in the 1 Stop Shpping Centre, which was built on the old Perry Barr dog track. It has a blue and glass frontage, giving nice views of the bus stops. The interior is a single open-paln room, with some iterior walling to break it up. The place is in red, cream and heavy wood panelling, and looks fairly neat. Some local photos, information boards and mirrors are on the walls. The Xmas tree was already up. There was no music and the usual Spoon's silent news TVs were present. It is of course foody, so it is populated by tables and chairs and a few sofas - they serve food until 11pm. This Spoon's pub also had a library. The service was friendly enough, although the chap likely knew as much about real ale as 95% of the mixed clientele - who were drinking lager. Beer; usual tap stuff, with an array of real ales that included Abbot, Ruddles, a couple from the Beowulf Brewery, UBU, and a pretty poor Jennings Dark MILD. Another Spoon's let down.

Opened on 22nd Jan 2010. Next to busy shopping centre and Perry Parr sits opposite the pub. Despite the appearance, the room is surprisingly airy and large. Plenty of space to dine and drink. Real ales are in good nick. Can be reached from Brum by 907 bus and drops off right by the pub.
